Grime has spread far enough around the globe that we can pretty much consider it an international sound these days, but in the genre’s birthplace, London, a new crop of producers based around the Boxed clubnight are breeding a new, highly potent instrumental strain. Following on the heels of releases from Mr Mitch and Logos is Boxed resident Slackk, who drops his debut long-player Palm Tree Fire on Local Action next month. Here’s a teaser track in the shape of “Ancient Dolphin”, a squirm of nagging eastern melodies, reggaeton percussion and rowdy vocal chants that’s both danceable and highly addictive.
